A California man was charged this week with fatally shooting a protected mountain lion in the head, prosecutors announced.

Alfredo Gonzalez, 60, of Simi Valley, was charged Tuesday in connection to the July slaying of the mammal, known as P-38, Ventura County District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced in a news release.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife received a July 10 report from the National Park Service that the collared mountain lion may have been killed in Simi Valley after a mortality signal was detected eight days earlier, prosecutors said.

Authorities ultimately determined that P-38, a male mountain lion born in 2012, died of a gunshot wound to the head. The big cat roamed portions of the Santa Susana Mountains.

Gonzalez was charged with the killing of a protected mammal and for the vandalism to its GPS-enabled collar, which biologists have used to study mountain lions for more than a decade, prosecutors said. He will be arraigned on Oct. 9.
